Make sure the ice isn't from Tap water!! It did seem like my belly was not happy with the water and I didn't know till I left, there where a few more guys that had the same problem but didn't know what it was.
Anyway
Me and my partner had a really nice break there and loved chilling out at the green pool, the Little breeze that was around was nice so we didn't get too hot. It was more chilled out at the back pool seeing it was kids with loud parents at the front that would take a seat before breakfast but we didn't mind.
Food was good I just wish there was more choice with the buffet and the birds where not going crazy during breakfast. The bedroom was very nice except the flood that happened just outside the room, loved the night lights and the balcony was nice at nights (2nd floor) take a trip the the sea as it's really is a good walk and see some cool things.
Overall it was a good trip and I'm happy my now fiancé said yes :)

I spent two nights at the Essouira Sofitel during a family holiday. We were meant to stay for a week but upon arrival changed our plans and left as soon as we could. The hotel is quite run down and service is terrible from the moment you arrive and all throughout the hotel. Food was quite mediocre and very limited in terms of number of restaurants and options on the menu, which given the fact that the hotel is so far from town is a problem. The beach is about 30 mins away walking, not great especially if you have children and font expect to find any type of services on offer once you get there. The pools in the hotel were freezing cold, not great in April when it's not that warm. Would never go there again.

Totally disapointed by a mediocre, TASTELESS, meal well presented in a very stylish and attractive room (but not very comfortable seating).
From mise en bouche to various entrees and main courses the meal which was supposed to be gastronomic was bland and uninspired. Morocco is the land of spices, no ?
Had to request 2 times a salt mill . Service was friendly but not classy and professional.
The friends we invited live in Essaouira and were embarassed to have recommended this
restaurant...and I doubt they will ever recommend it again to their many visitors.
